SMS service integration

Hello Team,
I recently came across integration of short messaging service like Twilio in openemr.
Following the same guide of short message service setup is it possible to integrate other messaging services the ones which we desire to use in openemr rather than Twilio?

Please guide.

Hi @anagha,
Currently my module supports RingCentral and Twilio however, these two vendors are each represented as a class where adding a new vendor class is doable. Though my abstract class to RC and Twilio is incomplete, as long as you follow the pattern of the two implemented classes, you’ll be fine.
